2009 Chinese Horoscopes

2009 is the Year of the Ox

Find out what your Chinese horoscope animal is in for this year!

Rat (1996, 2008)

You’re intelligent, hardworking and ambitious, but you’re not that great at making plans for the future, so make that a goal for this year. Your best matches are dragons and monkeys. Your element is water and your lucky number is 6.

Ox (1997, 2009)

You’re patient and strong, but you can be stubborn, too! This year, try lightening up a bit – everyone needs to laugh at themselves once in a while! Your best matches are roosters and snakes. Your element is water and your lucky number is 8.

Tiger (1986, 1998)

You’re adventurous, confident and very enthusiastic. Since your used to things going your way, you’re not very good at dealing with problems when they do happen. This year, make it your goal to be a better problem-solver. Your best matches are dogs and horses. Your element is wood and your lucky numbers are 1 and 3.

Rabbit (1987, 1999)

You’re sensitive, creative and very lucky! You’ve got a great nose for a bargain! You’re also a good listener, but you can be a bit of a dreamer, too. In 2009, try being more in touch with reality. Your best matches are rams and pigs. Your element is wood and your lucky numbers are 3 and 4.

Dragon (1988, 2000)

You’re confident, honest and energetic. You’re a natural-born leader, but because you aren’t always completely honest with yourself and others, you tend to get into trouble with people. This year, start telling only the truth, and try sticking closer to a regular routine, too. Your best matches are rabbits and monkeys. Your element is wood and your lucky number is 9.

Snake (1989, 2001)

You’re so smart! You’re also really good at making guesses about things, which means you don’t often need to take advice from others. You’re also a really reliable friend and have a great sense of humour – but you can be a bit tight with cash. Remember, saving is important, but splurging for special occasions is OK, too! Your best matches are oxen and roosters. Your element is fire and your lucky numbers are 3 and 9.

Horse (1990, 2002)

You work hard and play hard, too. Easygoing and calm, it takes a lot to get you angry… but if you do get mad, watch out! Try putting some water on that hot temper of yours this year! Your best matches are tigers and dogs. Your element is fire and your lucky numbers are 3 and 9.

Ram (1991, 2003)

Ram, sheep, goat… whatever you call yourself, you’re gentle, caring and compassionate. You bring a sense of peace to every situation you wander into. But your tendency to wander off-subject and lose your focus are points to work on this year. Your best matches are rabbits and pigs. Your element is fire and your lucky numbers are 8 and 9.

Monkey (1992, 2004)

You’re cheeky, charming and mischievous. Your smarts and naughty nature tend to get you in trouble – but you’re usually able to talk your way out of it! You don’t tell the truth often enough though, so people have a hard time trusting you. Try sticking with the old saying “Honesty is the best policy” in 2009. Your best matches are dragons and rats. Your element is metal and your lucky numbers are 6 and 8.

Rooster (1993, 2005)

You’re extremely organized and a hard worker, too. But you tend to come off as showy and arrogant – you’re great, but try not to blow your own horn too often this year! Your best matches are oxen and snakes. Your element is metal and your lucky numbers are 6 and 8.

Dog (1994, 2006)

You’re loyal, brave and caring – just like your four-legged BFF. You tend to worry a lot about the world’s problems; this year, start doing something about it and volunteer for a good cause! Your best matches are tigers and horses. Your element is metal and your lucky number is 8.

Pig (1995, 2007)

You love good company and nice clothes. You’re quick to lose your temper, but you usually calm down pretty fast – or, at least, you’ll try working on that this year! Your best matches are rabbits and rams. Your element is water and your lucky numbers are 6 and 7.

    Do you wish to be a star among your friends? Do you have the ambition to be spoken about largely among people/ Do you have the desire to be a part of the thrilling ride to win amazing prizes that you have always dreamt of?

    Dear Dish-it, This is really strange for me to write to you because I have never done anything like this before but I need an outside POV from my situation and I need help. These days, I don't know what I'm doing or what tomorrow is going to bring. But before I get into how I feel, I am going to explain my situation a bit first. So let's get started. My family is a family of 6 though my oldest sibling has left the house to live else where because he's 26 years old. Anyway, I argue a lot in my family in fact there's fights everyday either with me or just between other family members. I don't remember a time that we didn't fight... Sad ain't it? But I try and not let it bother me. My mom and me have the best and worst relationship out there. At one time, we understand ourselves completely but then something happens and the arguments stop... It always ends with her angry and me frustrated, crying and angry... I have cried more in the past year and half (That is when it got worst) Then my entire lifespan so far. Plus since she had a bad childhood, she tries to make everything different from hers but she ALWAYS compares me to her. I am a different person than her and she just doesn't understand that! I always feel really bad after because she wants me to be the perfect child but I can't and I never will be. I am just me. Like today, I punched a wall because I just wanted to feel something else than sadness and worst thing is that I fake smiles and optimism at school so nobody knows. My friends don't understand even though I have told them but now I brush it off. It's not their life so they don't need to understand it. But that's my situation... Now that you have heard something about me, I need help. I'm sending myself in the abyss. I am losing control. I feel as if everything is slipping from my fingers and everything is falling apart. I don't know what's happening to me! I am losing myself and I don't know what to do! It's hard to keep up my grades, to make sure that everything is done, that I go to my activities after school. It feels so hard to do right now... I throw things and slam doors when I am super mad. I don't have anger issues but I keep in so many emotions that I explode when I can't take them anymore. My world seems to be crumbling before my eyes. My family is in debt, my parents might split and my brothers hate me. My dog, running, drawing and books are my only escape.  I don't know what to do... Sincerely LostintheAbyss
